“Any field you choose in tech is the right field, since the need for tech talent is so massive. So if you’re looking at it as a career, you have to say to yourself, ‘What do I want to do? What does my inner compass tell me I want to do?’”

“I’ve noticed that the women who have the net worth are able to give the wealth away at this level, they’re able to make consumption decisions. But when it comes to asking them to make investment decisions, that seems to still be a barrier.” - Heather Redman, vice president of business operations and general counsel at Indix Corp, Angel Investor

Women Who Tech ...noted that women-led tech startups attract only 7% of investor financing. Despite that...women-led ventures deliver a 35% return on investment and generate 12% more revenue than male-run startups.

#womenwhotech
By most accounts, Silicon Valley can be a very cold place for women in technology. In response, the organization Women Who Tech is launching a month-long challenge today aimed at elevating the profile of female tech entrepreneurs.

Grab a coffee? My networking tip is to make it quite clear to your coffee date why you’re meeting and what the specific ask is.
Friday morning, I had the extraordinary privilege of sitting front row / stage left at Creative Mornings (NYC) to hear John Forte share his story – in words and music. Creative Mornings' global theme for April was humility and when an artist's life journey has taken him from Brooklyn to New ...

Q: Define “entrepreneur” for me.
A: spending many waking moments dreaming of doing my own thing; pushing forward despite downer comments; feeling ‘it’ in your gut, your heart and your soul; having limitless energy and passion; maintaining a desire to keep taking steps forward; not getting hung up on the ‘what-ifs’; and waking each day feeling confident and determined!

Introduction

Kelly Hoey is a speaker, strategist, startup advisor and board member. A connection-maker, networking strategist and expert community builder, Kelly is known for her leadership in building valuable professional networks, understanding the dynamics of engaged communities and the “how” of raising visibility, online and off. 

In 2011, Kelly co-founded Women Innovate Mobile, LLC (WIM), the first startup accelerator focused exclusively on fast-tracking the growth of early-stage mobile technology ventures with gender-diverse founding teams. Kelly continues to invest in as well as advise emerging technology companies.

As managing director of WIM, Kelly was responsible for building the accelerator’s global influencer network of partnerships and connections (over 100,000 online connections, including 88,000 followers on Google+). She was also responsible for leading WIM’s marketing efforts including creating the Google+ Hangout on Air Series #womenwhotech and the “Meet The Innovators” speaker series launched with Apple, Inc. in 2013.

Prior to her entrepreneurial leap, Kelly was immersed in the legal world, initially as a corporate attorney, and ultimately in leadership positions at global law firm White & Case, playing a key role in the development of the firm’s global alumni, professional development and women’s initiatives. In 2009, Kelly became the first president of the women’s business networking group 85 Broads and worked directly with 85 Broads’ CEO/Founder on strategies to re-engage the membership base.
